Michael Franks's New Studio Recording, "Rendezvous in Rio"


Michael Franks, a mainstay in the contemporary jazz scene since the '70s, is back with "Rendezvous in Rio, " his new album featuring 10 new original songs with distinctive arrangements from long-time collaborators Jeff Lorber, Jimmy Haslip, Russell Ferrante, Chuck Loeb and others. "Rendezvous in Rio" will be released on June 27th, 2006. The music of renowned Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Jobim has been a great influence to Franks' previous music, and it can be seen in this album as well. "Rendezvous in Rio" includes an 'unrequited love' song "The Question is Why, " "The Critics Are Never Kind" from his musical "Noa Noa, " which portrays a musical conversation between artists Gauguin, Van Gogh, and Degas, the bittersweet "Songbirds, " and two jazzy numbers: "The Cool School" and "Hearing 'Take Five.'"
